Lenovo 31P7415 Black 104 Normal Keys PS/2 Wired

 

This is nothing like the mechanical switch keyboards from long ago. Save your money for something better.

It serves a very limited purpose for when a wireless keyboard doesn't work.

Within a couple of months some of the keys required several very heavy hits to produce the required characters. Generally this is a key pounders keyboard and not a very good one at that.

Best Standard Keyboard

 

Wrist rest is nice, but not everybody uses one. It doesn't have any multimedia/shortcut buttons but I honestly don't use them and I couldn't justify that as a con.

This is a solid, quiet keyboard ; Next to mechanical keyboards (Rosewill, Das) and the discontinued Logitech Elite keyboard (the one with the spinning volume control) this is my favorite keyboard of all time

Wasn't cheaper. Doesn't make the familiar click-clack noise of the old IBM Model Ms

Best Rubber Dome Keyboard

 

I've been looking for a keyboard for my new system build and decided on this one. My requirements were: Not ridiculously expensive, looks good, feels great, sturdily built, no stupid frills. This keyboard met or exceeded all of those requirements. My...

Excellent key feel and travel. Includes removable wrist rest. Quiet (if you like that in a keyboard.) Sturdy construction. Classy looks. Integrated pen rest at top. No frills, just great typing. Ps/2 connection.

Uses rubber dome switches. Not a Model M.
